It will be fine. Just avoid extremely hot temps.

Where are you going? My inlaws are in WPB and coming here but I'm not sure central FL will be any better.

I've lived in Florida pretty much my whole life and never seen everyone take a hurricane this seriously in this area. It's very scared.

Insulin will be fine. Just don't leave it in the car. Room temperature is fine

My thoughts are with you as you leave home and I pray that somehow the storm would shift and not make land

My daughter just called. She lives in Coral Springs. We are trying to get her up to Georgia if possible. If you have any details please share. I am terrified for her.

Thanks guys. I'm hoping it doesn't head this way but like I said it has all the floridians panicking. My husband went to get gas and the lines were outrageous and the only think left was the highest one for 3.39 a gallon.

Orlando has long lines for gas and water / supplies also. I got all prescriptions filled today so that is good.
